Every garden deserves a little whimsy.
Glass totems have been circulating the internet for ages. I started collecting some various glass pieces from thrift stores when a friend mentioned she really like the glass totems we had seen at a craft sale.
The fun part was stacking them in different ways to see which looked best. I collected all clear glass this time. I didn’t want the patterns on the glass to be overshadowed by various colours.
Plates, bowls, glasses and candle holders were glued together to make this first one. It took awhile to make as I glued 2 pieces together and then waited for it to dry. I used E-6000 industrial strength adhesive, which is also waterproof. It cost close to $10 a tube but I used a 50% off coupon from MIchaels to bring the price down. I made these awhile ago but couldn’t post them because this one was a gift for a friend. And you never know who is peeking at your site do you?
This one was put together the same way, 1 piece at a time. It sits on the table in the gazebo.
Do you rescue and reuse old glass. Here are some other projects I made.
